Companies are forever thinking of new and innovative ways to optimize their factory production. But while they typically come up with various management solutions to achieve this, they tend to underestimate the adverse effects of downtime they experience. A major reason for this is because a large percentage of companies lack sufficient data to accurately estimate the cost of their downtime. This then leads to incorrect estimates and results in directives being taken in the wrong direction to address this problem. Fortunately for manufacturing automation companies, xyndata is looking to help them solve this particular challenge.
xyndata is an innovative provider of technical solutions for industry with a major focus on simplifying people’s lives with easy-to-use web and phone communication solutions. The company is also in the business of improving the CNC equipment with machine monitoring systems for the machining and manufacturing industry, in tune with the latest trends in IoT monitoring. On this note, xyndata has come up with xynLOG, a manufacturing monitoring software for the industry 4.0.
The xynLOG software seamlessly connects to existing infrastructure and continuously collects machine data. The software then analyses and processes the gathered information to provide useful and accessible information to decision makers. It also helps that xynLOG can be connected to virtually any type of machining equipment.
In addition, xynLOG offers real-time machine health monitoring so that one can stay on top the required maintenance. This is made possible by all the information already collected by the software. As a result, one can easily monitor OEE manufacturing, machine and labor utilization, and downtime in real time for maximum production efficiency. Tracking a company’s productivity is also another advantage of xynLOG. The software allows one to compare information collected from individual machines or groups of machines and sectors. This further empowers operators to meet production targets by identifying bottlenecks.
One unique selling point of xynLOG is that it allows machine monitoring via IP or webcam. All one has to do is integrate a camera capable of capturing video that can be played back via an xynLOG iOS or Android App or xynLOG web portal. This means that one monitor processes from virtually anywhere and ensure production quality is maintained.
The complete ecosystem is fully integrated with a mobile app, allowing one to access all relevant information about their CNC or IoT equipment directly on the phone.
What’s more, xynLOG can simplify the wear-based preventive maintenance plan by tracking uptime and different operating parameters of the equipment. The software analyzes this data and sends automatic notifications in the form of error and warning messages when variables are outside the reference values. In this way, one can better monitor the equipment and anticipate preventive maintenance through IoT messaging.
In the rare instance that the xynLOG software does not meet a particular need, the xyndata team consisting of a strong team of developers can offer bespoke solutions to improve business processes with software solutions and data analytics.
